What Is the Cheapest Tesla?
The US administration wants manufacturers to make 50 percent of all new cars electric by 2030. But Tesla Motors has been producing and selling electric vehicles since 2008.
Many people love Teslas but think they can’t afford one. Yet manufacturers like Mayco International have helped cut costs, allowing for the recent production of the cheapest Tesla ever.
The latest Tesla to hit roads near you is affordable for almost any budget. And it offers the same benefits as Tesla Motors’ more expensive models.
So, what is the cheapest Tesla model? And exactly how much is the cheapest Tesla? We’re answering these questions and more below.
The Cheapest Tesla Model in 2021
In 2017, Tesla started producing its Model 3. The brand designed this vehicle to address budget-concerned customers.
The original Model 3 was less expensive than the Tesla Model S. Yet, with a price tag of over $40,000, the original Tesla Model 3 wasn’t actually affordable.
All that changed when, in 2019, the company released a $35,000 standard Tesla Model 3. This is the cheapest Tesla price on the market in 2021.
Tesla also sells a $37,000 Model 3 Standard Range Plus. These vehicles have increased miles of range, a higher top speed, and premium interiors.
Why Buy a Standard Tesla Model 3?
The $35,000 Model 3 is the perfect entry-level Tesla. But aside from price, why else do so many drivers love this vehicle?
Firstly, it has impressive stats. The standard Model 3 features a 220-mile range and a 130 mph top speed. It can accelerate from 0–60 mph in only 5.6 seconds.
The Model 3 is also extremely attractive. Its standard version features a pearl white exterior with a black interior and 18-inch wheels.
For an additional cost, customers can order their vehicle in black, silver, blue, or red. Tesla also offers the option to add on custom white interiors and/or 19-inch sport wheels.
Finally, Tesla’s $35,000 Model 3 comes with all the advanced auto technology the brand has become known for. Customers can upgrade to Tesla’s self-driving capability. And, like all Teslas, the standard Model 3 has a five-star safety rating.
The Downside to Buying a Standard Model 3
Many customers think the standard Model 3’s $35,000 price tag is too good to be true. And they’re somewhat right. Tesla no longer sells its standard Model 3 online.
To purchase this vehicle, you have to visit a Tesla store or place your order over the phone. Keep in mind that Tesla has shuttered many of its physical stores, so an over-the-phone order may be your only option today.
But for customers who prefer online ordering, there is good news. The Tesla Group sells a slightly more expensive Model 3 — the Standard Range Plus — starting at $37,990. This vehicle is also available to lease for $329 per month.
